The mere mention of Mohamed Salah’s name is more than enough to put a smile on most of our faces. The Egyptian is possibly enjoying the best form of his career and he has played an exemplary role for us throughout this season. Suffice to say, we owe most of our success to his heroics in front of the goal and he seems to show no signs of slowing down.

As a reward for his efforts, Salah has received numerous accolades and in a recent interview with Liverpool’s official website, our Egyptian marvel got candid as he spoke about his sensational form and goalscoring exploits.

“It means a lot. I try to score every game to help the team and to get the points,” said Salah.

He recently hit the 40-goal mark for the season and there is no doubt that he will be crucial for us in the games to come. However, Salah showcased his modesty as he credited his teammates for the good fortune.

“That is the most important thing for us, that we play as a team, as 11 players, and so each goal for me is to help the team. It is a great feeling, of course it is a great feeling, but in the end I am just happy to score and help the team.”

When asked about Liverpool’s chances in the Champions League and his chances of winning the coveted Golden Boot, Salah said:

“If I had a choice between the Champions League and the Golden Boot, then of course it would be the Champions League, no doubt the Champions League. To win the Champions League is huge for everyone. I don’t care about the rest.”

For a player to put the team ahead of his own personal glory is truly incredible and that defines Salah. Maybe this is why he is such a loved figure even among the fans of other clubs. Modesty and commitment can take a player farther than flashy cars and hairstyles and this sets Salah apart from most of his contemporaries.

When asked if he could beat club legend Rush’s incredible record of 47 goals in the 1983-84 season, Salah admitted that the margin was very close. Nevertheless, one cannot deny that the attacker is enjoying a magnificent debut season so far.

It is safe to say that we have unearthed a gem in the form of Salah and full credit to Klopp for bringing him to Anfield.

Liverpool have their work cut out in the Champions League but as long as we have Salah in our team, I think we will make it to Kiev for the final.

Liverpool youngster Marko Grujic has picked up ankle ligament damage during Hertha Berlin’s 4-2 win over Borussia Monchengladbach, as per Sky Sports.

The Serbian midfielder joined the Bundesliga side on a loan deal and has played four games for them. Hertha are currently second in the competition behind Bayern Munich with 10 points from four games.

Hertha’s general manager Michael Preetz was quoted by Sky Sports saying.

“Marko has managed to make a significant difference to our game in the short time he has been with us, which is why the loss for him personally and for us is very, very bitter.

“Now we will look after him and help him, so that he can play that role as soon as possible.”

The report adds that the midfielder had signed a new deal with the Reds before joining the Bundesliga side on loan and was part of the Serbian World Cup squad in Russia.

Grujic had a huge role to play in Cardiff’s promotion to the Premier League last season and did well in his three starts for Hertha this term.

(Video) Mohamed Salah hands Liverpool jersey to tearful young fan after win over Saints

Mohamed Salah got on the scoresheet against Southampton over the weekend but also there was another moment that is being spoken about on social media.

The Egyptian broke his mini-drought as he scored from Xherdan Shaqiri’s free-kick and he also had a few chances to make it two in the game.

The former AS Roma forward hasn’t been at his free-scoring best from last season but is slowly regaining his mojo in front of the goal.

Wayne Dunlop posted a video of his son on Twitter. The child was holding up a sign after the match at Anfield and Salah gave the youngster his shirt from the game.

It is an emotional video of the Twitter user’s son, Lewis, tearing up as the Egyptian hands him the shirt he wore during the game.

Salah even responded to the video uploaded and Wayne was very happy that his son received such a fantastic piece of memorabilia from Anfield.

The Egyptian is one of the best footballers in the world but it is moments like these that ensure the fans love players more.

Salah could have ignored the young fan and walked down the tunnel but he took time out to make the fan happy.

The Reds lead the Premier League standings at the moment, having won all six of their clashes in the Premier League so far.

Jurgen Klopp dispels injury concern after surprise substitution against Southampton

Published

Xherdan Shaqiri

Xherdan Shaqiri started for Liverpool in the clash against Southampton and was instrumental in our a 3-0 lead at half-time.

His shot was turned into the net by Wesley Hoedt for our first goal and his free-kick was slotted into an open net by Mohamed Salah for our third.

It was a little surprising that Jurgen Klopp decided to take the Swiss star off at half-time and replace him with James Milner.

Shaqiri was our most impressive attacker on Saturday as he played an advanced role behind our front three.

However, Milner came onto the pitch and we played with three central midfielders, something Klopp has used to great effect throughout his time at Liverpool.

The German spoke to the club’s official website as he explained he wanted more control in the game and that’s why he took Shaqiri off.

“I said to Shaq at half-time that I had never brought a player off after such an influential time without an injury. He is not injured. But I wanted to control the game and go back to our normal formation. And that helped, we really controlled it.”

The manager further added that it was not easy to make the change, given how influential Shaqiri was in the first half.

Klopp did explain the change to Shaq but playing the Swiss star had an impact on our defence and that was a problem for the manager.

“The only problem was defensively. Offensively, it was a good idea but, how I said, we have to work on that more often. But he was good and I liked it.”
